Touch the Stars

“Touch the Stars” dramatically showcases the robotic spacecraft used in the exploration of our solar system and the galaxy beyond.

Ride along on the coolest trip through our solar system and Touch the Stars! A fulldome show for planetariums and digital dome theatres.

Touch the Stars centers on mankind’s probes used in exploration of our solar system and the galaxy beyond. The film traces the path to space through the history of NASA’s probes, orbiters, and landers, from the heart of our solar system to the surface of the other planets and moons, to the grand tour of the Voyager spacecraft through the outer planets and beyond. Created with the latest imagery and scientific data, Touch the Stars uses inspiring real footage and three-dimensional vistas of our solar system and interstellar space to transport audiences to planets and distant stars alongside these intrepid robot explorers.
